Sorry, just riding a XUV - but, cross an ATV with a Pick Up and you'll get a XUV!

I grew up on a 1985 Big Red and various dirt bikes. I still have the three wheeler in the barn. I'd love to have a big comfortable 4 wheeler to play with  but I don't have much use for it. I've been on friends machines over the years and that seems to satisfy me for now.

I've been riding since i was a kid started with mini bikes and go karts and went from there.

Here's a picture of my sears mini bike the one that never got away from me i need to either make a motor plate for the worked over predator engine or find something that bolts in.

I have had a couple ATV's i started on a 98 suzuki king quad 300 then upgraded in 04 to a 05 suzuki Z-400 but they are both long gone. I recently picked up this 02 Kawasaki Mojave for 600 didn't start or run needed the valves adjusted and a carb adjustment.

I've been riding three wheelers my whole life. Can't seem to enjoy riding anything else (minus my Bolens). I started on a Yamaha Tri Zinger when I was 3. Ridden everything from 250r's to Big Reds. Now my oldest son rides my same Tri Zinger and does pretty well on it.

"I had a buddy the other day call and asked me what was wrong with his 4 wheeler, I told him he needed to lose a wheel."

"The difference between riding a 4 wheeler a 3 wheeler; a 4 wheeler is like riding a mechanical bull, a 3 wheeler is like riding a real bull."

(Let's be honest, I'd have a nice utility quad if I could afford one."

I got two in for repair. One is a cheap Chinese made atv which I will have finished tomorrow and the other is a 2005 Honda trx450 that I'm tearing into this weekend

I found a old video from the last time I visited my uncle in Ohio.

Looks like you went out and played in the mud! Been many years since I have done that!

CanAm 400 2 up Outlander and a Polaris 400. Lots of trailriding in the mountains and a few cattle drives on a friend's ranch. Plus general stuff around the place like towing carts full of wood and dragging the lawn sweeper.

IIRC, it took 4 joints 2 3/8" tubing and 8 8' 2 x 12. ...and a full day and a half cutting, coping and welding. If I were to make another one, I'd make a double slope ramp to eliminate the sharp corner at the top of the ramp. The lawn tractor deck catches on the point of the ramp.

I have a glorified golf cart: Kawasaki Mule with a Curtis cab & heat. I added a winch, off road lights, strobe light in the rear, trailer receiver hitch, wide rear view racing style mirror (sometimes I'm on the road to get farm to farm). Fabricated a small 3X4 trailer from reclaimed material and a headache rack for a tactical bag w/gun rack. Straight axle in the rear so I go slow thru the woods. This thing uses very little fuel. I like the dump bed (manual) for hauling firewood to tools. I had a Polaris Sportsman that served me well but after owning/using a side by side I don't think I'll ever go back to a ATV.

 

Neat thread, I've enjoyed every post to include the side by side's w/the track kits!
